When I was young, I used to feel that my medium was language.  I studied philosophy intently and wrote.  But I came to feel that I was just talking about life.  I also came to feel that traditional philosophy had run its course.

Then, I spent the better part of my life just living it, as anyone would.

Now, I am grateful to have in photography a medium in which, once again, to show something about life;--not in grand terms, but as it's really lived. By anyone.  By all of us.

 

Note:   If you are in one of the photos on this site, and I have not already sent you your photo, please send me an email detailing the gallery you are in and something that will help me clearly identify you--your clothes or what you are doing, and I will be happy to send you your photo.

 

P.S.  I would love to read everyone's comments, but I'm afraid I am only proficient in English.   Okay, I can read Spanish, and a very little French, but I do best in English.
